to alter his attack on the president. with reaction from mitt romney, here is jim acosta. >> reporter: after a couple of days of very positive reviews for his debate performance against president obama, mitt romney is running in political news that may be blunting that momentum. the new unemployment report showing that the jobless rate has dipped below 8%, really taking away one of his key lines of attack against the president. for months, mitt romney has been saying the president failed to take the nation's unemployment rate below 8%, but at an event here in coal country in virginia, romney found a new way to crunch the numbers. here is what he had to say. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly. but it has come down nonetheless. the reason it has come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> reporter: now for much of this weekend, romney will be campaigning across the state of florida, a state where the econom

it with our news watch panel today. jim pinkerton is a contributing editor and writer for the american conservative magazine. alan colmes is host of the alan colmes radio show and he has a new book out "thank the liberals for saving america." i'm going to start with you first, alan because i know what you're going to say. you're going to say that the mainstream media are not in the tank for president obama and never have been. >> okay, thank you. jon: no, that's -- >> really don't buy the right-wing pai pair paranoia, because liberals are liberal and are in the tank for president obama. they follow what is in their interest that is going to sell papers or get clicks online or get vires. they do what will get them attention. i don't about it automatic set up that all of a sudden the media has turned against someone they automatically favored up until about four days ago. jon: jim, what is your counter argument? >> well, i mean i think that the media, if they really wanted to sell papers and get clicks and get eyeballs in the nielsens they would have pursued a lot of the obama scandals.
and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
. >> it was more british style than american-style, which was good. >> do i think that jim lehrer was a weak moderator? yes. that is okay. it is not about the moderator. it is about the candidates, not the moderator showboating. i thought it was good. >> if you asked both sides, the romney folks would say romney -- irani folks would say obama talked longer and the obama side would say romney talk longer. >> president obama talked about 5 minutes or so -- 4.5 minutes more than romney. but i think romney was better. less was more. on the side of the room, yes, sir. >> i was wondering, have you seen any differences in the senate races where republicans associate with the tea party? if not, how could turn out affect that? -- how could turnout affect that? >> there are a lot of important races in november, not just the presidential. i do not know the answer. there are a lot of very close senate races, like charlie was talking about, in states that product -- in states that romney is probably going to win. missouri, north dakota, arizona. there are 4 states where democratic senate candidates are r

presidental debate this week especially with paul ryan controversial plan to overhaul the program. jim angle takes a look at the numbers for us breaking it down from washington. >> reporter: there is a critical dispute over whether president obama cut $716 billion from medicare which could seriously affect seniors or whether he saved 716 billion as he said in the debate. >> $716 billion we were able to save from the medicare program by no longer over paying insurance companies, by making sure that we weren't over paying providers. >> reporter: others, however, say they are not savings, they are cuts to medicare that shortchange providers such as doctors and hospitals. >> when you pay a provider of a service much, much less than they actually need to cover that you are costs, many of them will stop supplying it. >> reporter: that is the same assessment of the action wear reese at medicare who determined the $716 billion cut would reduce payments so much that medicare would be worth less to doctors than medicaid healthcare for the praor, drawing this comment from the debate. >> some 15% of hos
